Gartner® Hype Cycle™ for Cloud Security, 2021

Published by Illumio

As public cloud adoption accelerates, increasingly complex cloud services bring new risk challenges for protecting enterprise workloads. In fact, Gartner says, “By 2023, 70% of all enterprise workloads will be deployed in cloud infrastructure and platform services, up from 40% in 2020.”   
The Gartner Hype Cycle for Cloud Security 2021 report highlights key technologies to improve the security of public and hybrid cloud deployments, recognizing Illumio as a Sample Vendor for “identity-based segmentation” (also known as Zero Trust segmentation and micro-segmentation). 

According to Gartner, “Identity-based segmentation can reduce the risk and impact of cyberattacks” such as ransomware. It “enables enterprises to enforce consistent segmentation policies across on-premises and cloud-based workloads, including workloads that host containers that meet compliance requirements.”

Download the report to gain insights into:

  • Why identity-based segmentation is considered a proven technology for cloud security 
  • The drivers for segmentation with the rise in hybrid cloud, infrastructure as a service (IaaS), and container architectures — and ransomware attacks
  • Key recommendations for evaluating segmentation tools and capabilities
